Susan Boyle – Talented Singer Despite The Critics
A few days ago, an article on Susan Boyle created many debates and made some of her fans think that I, the editor, have a “problem” with this singer. The article I published aimed to make people aware of the fact that Susan Boyle will be releasing her autobiography, but instead of accomplishing that purpose, or besides that, it created a whole drama and the comments were mostly linked to the question I used at the end of the article.
“But, still there are many people that don’t like Susan Boyle. Are you one of them?,” the question said. Does it mean that I don’t like Susan Boyle? I really don’t think so. However, people wrote that I obviously am not one of this singer’s fans and that I personally don’t like her, trying, through my article, to “track down people that don’t like Susan’s music.”
Was that my purpose? Definitely not! But, was it what her fans believed I was doing? It seems so. However, I never said anything bad about Susan Boyle. I actually wrote that she is a talented singer, with an incredible voice. I don’t think I said something unkind about her, as I have been accused in the comments people have left below the article. Oh, well, except the way I ended it. But, was that so wrong? I said that there are many people that don’t like her music. The affirmation was based on the many mean comments that people leave on the articles about Susan and I found many such reviews on the internet. Can someone honestly say that everyone loves her music? Or is there an artist who is liked by everyone? Can someone say that pop singers, rappers and even opera singers have only fans? I am sure that Susan Boyle, like any other artist, has many fans and her success proves it. And fans should know better that Susan Boyle’s talent was the one that helped her become the artist she is today and that happened despite all critics.
Her first public appearance at “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2009, when Susan Boyle sang “I Dreamed A Dream” from Les Miserables, made everyone realize that she has all the chances to win this competition. And she made it to the finals. Although Susan Boyle wasn’t the one to win the show, finishing the competition on the second place, behind dance troupe Diversity, Susan’s powerful voice brought her the success she has today.
Well, people wrote that the ones that don’t like Susan Boyle the artist are heartless. Is that a kind thing to say? Should everyone like her? – this was asked in another comment. And as an editor of the article I have to like her to write about her? Do I have to like war to write about it? My article wasn’t subjective and the facts I wrote weren’t attacking anyone. I never attacked the artist and I never wrote something “hateful” about her, as I have been accused. What is really hateful? To say that there are people who don’t like her and the way she sings? And that was the real problem of the article, the way I raised that question.
However, even though fans asked people to be kind and never make bad comments about Susan, they only limited their requirements on their favorite singer. I, on the other hand, was called “idiot,” “hateful,” “heartless,” and the list can go on, although they seem to agree that people can’t be perfect and we all make mistakes. Was it the best example that fans could have given and mostly after they asked other people, including me, to be kind?
Well, people also asked when the comments option will be closed by the site. And the answer is that they weren’t because we appreciate when people share their opinion about the articles posted, even though sometimes there may be criticism. And I also thank the ones that posted their comments on my Susan Boyle article.11
